A 17 year career creating award-winning work for some of the world’s leading brands, studios and directors and over
14 years of team leadership, direction
and experience.

Cinematographer, Editor, Storyteller... For over 17 years Miller has been on the front line creating and producing award-winning work for some of the world’s leading brands, studios and directors. From creative direction to photography direction to editorial, Miller is with you every step of the way.

 

Born in Dallas Texas and raised in Southern California, Miller has taken on the creative tradition from his father Norman, an award winning Creative Director, Musician,  Producer and Illustrator and his mother an award winning Interior Designer.  Miller grew up exposed to the creative arts from the very beginning as his parents took him along to many music recording sessions, photo shoots and video productions all through his childhood. At the end of his middle school, Miller was already designing title art and composing music for his father's syndicated TV shows.

 

Graduating college in 1995, Miller set out into the world of television and what was the start of the ".com" revolution. At a time where wearing multiple hats was key, Miller took on as much as his talents would allow. From graphic design and art direction to storytelling and news gathering, he built his knowledge base from the ground up. Miller researched and learned as much as he could about the craft and technologies he would be using to create a living, breathing "no bull" asset. While working as an art director in the .com community, Miller took his passion for photography and storytelling further by teaching himself the editorial process on AVID. Later he started his own production company in 1999 producing high quality creative content for many clients in corporate and broadcast television. Today Miller is an award winning Cinematographer, Editor and Director with over 8 Telly Awards and 10 Aurora Awards.
